Merla – The Mad Quest

Ah, Merla.  Lorounce hadn’t seen his childhood friend in some time, and once back in her presence, all he wanted to do was watch her graceful movements.  Of course he was just a simple farmer’s son and since she had moved to the nation’s capital she had attracted attention of men all of the way up to the top.  He knew better than to set his heart at such a lofty height.

Merla, for her part, still teased Lorounce at once mercilessly, but also kindly, the way she did when they were playmates and rivals. She acted like she wanted to be friends the way they were when they were 12.

But they were no longer 12. Continue reading

Brandon – Towards the Light

Brandon is just a normal guy.  There is probably someone like him at your office.  He doesn’t seem to take things quite as seriously as everyone else.  You know the type, constantly making obscure references to not-quite-so-popular culture, or perhaps no-longer-popular culture.  A word or situation might remind him of the lyrics of a song forgotten 40 years ago or a Shakespeare quote that nobody else, even Shakespeare experts, remember.  He also seems to have every fantasy novel, story and movie memorized.  Yeah, you know the type, only Brandon rarely, if ever, quotes Monty Python….

If you got to know him a little better, you may discover that Brandon has two kids, the 11 year old Leo and the 9 year old Cate.  These super imaginative, playful kids are the center of his life, particularly since his wife, Lisa, died of cancer several years ago.  Even though it has been a few years, Brandon has not come to terms with her death.

Part of the problem is that Brandon has this feeling that he isn’t where he is supposed to be.  He hears Destiny calling, and Destiny isn’t something that happens doing small chores around the house, but something that happens “out there”. Continue reading

Release Date and Preorder – Towards the Light and The Mad Quest!

The release date for my two novellas, Towards the Light and The Mad Quest has been set!  Kindle and paperback editions will be set on Tuesday, May 21, 2019!

What are the two novellas about?  Here is the blurb:

In what should have been a normal day, Brandon finds himself down the rabbit hole and into a new reality where he is captured by Dwarves, gets involved in “Elemental Politics” and finds himself in a race to save the worlds – yes worlds, six, perhaps seven – and the peoples of those worlds in the tongue-in-cheek Fantasy novella, “Towards the Light”.

Lorounce, a “not only is the glass half empty, but the longer we talk about it, the more that evaporates” kind of guy, is on a reconnaissance mission with his childhood friend and secret crush, Merla, to enter the stronghold of the evil Lord of Darkness.  The mission soon spins off on an adventure to try to rescue the prince, find and confront the dragon to secure the magic sword and then raise an army to defeat the evil one with said magic sword all while being chased not only by the minions of the evil one, including a pack of magical wolves, but their own people as well. Whew.  It is totally impossible, mad even, but with some unexpected help and a few twists along the way, maybe they could pull it off, this adventure called “The Mad Quest”.

“Towards the Light” and “The Mad Quest” are two fast paced, farcical Fantasy novellas.  With visible winks and nods to the great Fantasy works that came before, but with a few unexpected twists, these two stories are light-hearted valentines to those classic works of the past; love notes but with pokes in the ribs and “bunny-ears” behind the head fun.
